Self Directed (Tactile Decoration)
For my final concept for decorative baby proofing i want to create an object that protects a child from harming his or herself, but i also want to create an object that can be welcoming. I know it sounds ridiculous but decoration or ornate fixture are often to children made out to be forbidden and that they should never touch them. For my final concept i have chosen to look at silicone, Latex and foam rubber for the final material. I want my decorative products to be grabbed twisted and chewed on if need be. I hope to create decorative practical objects that want to be touched and that perhaps attract the children not to the things the objects conceal but to the object itself.
